Those seeking to create a safe and comfortable area for horses and other show animals will love the Dog Bone Outdoor Paver Tiles 1.75 Inch All Colors. These PaveSafe rubber pavers and tiles are manufactured using a unique proprietary re-bonding process capable of converting 100% premium quality recycled rubber into a pristine, low cost rubber material with superior physical properties.
PaveSafe is easy to install and virtually maintenance free. Our dog bone rubber pavers are proven to support a superior coefficient of friction in both wet and dry conditions, Dog bone tile rubber pavers greatly reduce the risk of injury for horses, riders and groomers.
Similarly, the anti-shock and bacteria controlling properties of our PaveSafe rubber dog bone pavers result in a healthy surfacing choice. Our rubber bricks for horse barns offer convenient installation in any equestrian application.
These rubber brick pavers for horse barns and walkways will give a great finished look to any horse barn or nearby location. We've collected the five best reasons to make use of dog bone pavers in your horse barn area.
1. Multiple Color Options
The dog bone rubber pavers are available in earthy color options. The look of these tiles enhances the appearance of any equine area, replacing traditional dirty, dusty and slippery hard surfaces. You can pick from forest green, terra cotta, and gray with a solid color look all the way through the tile, meaning you can reverse them if needed. A black colored tile is sometimes available too. The surface is smooth and flat.
The gray pigment becomes dark gray after a short period of time when the tiles are exposed to UV sunlight. There is also a greater shade variance between the pavers. This is not a potential warranty issue but just the nature of the product.
You can even create patterns in your installation by using multiple colors of tiles together.
2. Multiple Use Ideas
These rubber dog bone pavers work well in walkways and aisle ways inside a barn, creating a flat and safe area in which to transfer your horse from place to place. Because cement and other hard surfaces can become slippery when they're wet, they may not be the safest materials for horses, trainers and groomers to walk on.
Our tiles consist primarily of recycled tire rubber, giving them plenty of durability and longevity. No matter what kind of weather you're encountering, these dog bone rubber pavers will yield a slip resistant area for the horse and handlers. The rubber provides a resilient surface for the horses' hooves, allowing the horse to walk without tension in the legs. Some specific usage ideas include the following.
Breeding shed: Rather than using wood chips that can allow bacteria to grow in a breeding shed, these tiles will keep the area clean and safe for both the adult and baby. Any water or fluids will drain through the dog bone pavers, making it easier to keep this area clean and protected.
Corridors and paths: If you're constantly moving horses from barn to barn, you probably have worn a path in the ground that becomes muddy during rain and doesn't drain properly. Our rubber pavers fix this problem. Just level the area with a proper subsurface and lay the dog bone rubber pavers over the top to create a walking path that will always drain properly and provide a steady footing for the horse.
Racetrack winner's circle: Our pavers look so good that you may want to use them as a surface area in a photography location for the animals, such as in a winner's circle at a horse racing track or in a show arena. Additionally, the pavers provide a safe area for the horse and handlers to stand without worrying about sinking into the mud.
Racetrack saddling paddock: At the racetrack, you want to ensure the horses and jockeys are safe while saddling the horses. No matter what weather you encounter before the race, our rubber pavers will give everyone trustworthy footing they can use to safely saddle and prepare the horse.
Wash bays in a barn: If you have horses that become a little skittish in a wash bay, the rubber dog bone pavers ensure the animal will not slip while moving around, because these tiles remain safe to walk on when they're wet.
The dog bone rubber pavers each are 1.75 inches in thickness, which is thick enough to support the weight of the horses safely. These tough tiles carry a 3-year manufacturer warranty. You'll see these types of tiles installed at many race horse tracks.
3. Ease of Layout
Each individual tile covers 0.29 square feet, meaning it requires 3.42 dog bone rubber pavers to cover a square foot. The widest area of the paver is 0.65 feet, while the longest area is 0.52 feet. Because these tiles are shaped like dog bones, they don't have a coverage area equal to the dimensions of the longest and widest areas of the tile.
The dog bone rubber pavers are made to fit together closely, but they're not so tight that they will repel water. The water will drain through the seams in the tiles and then evaporate in the subsurface that you've prepared.
As you lay out the tiles, each side of the tile has an indention. The size of the indention perfectly accommodates the ends of two other tiles laid next to it. You can see the installation design with the photographs on this Greatmats web site. Once you have the hang of laying out these rubber dog bone pavers, you'll be able to move through the area quickly.
Should you need to cut the tiles, you can score them with a utility knife and a straight edge. Another option is to cut the dog bone pavers with a jigsaw.
4. Ease of Installation
When considering your installation options, you'll want to be sure you've measured the area for the rubber dog bone pavers properly. With accurate measurements, you'll have an easier time ordering the proper number of tiles. If you are struggling to figure out how many dog bone pavers you need, just contact our customer service team to gain help with the calculations.
Each tile weighs 2.5 pounds, which means you can install these rubber dog bone pavers with just one person if needed. Installation will go faster with multiple people, though. You'll most often use a dry lay installation with these dog bone pavers, meaning no adhesives or taping is required. However, an adhesive installation is possible if desired.
You have two options for the subsurface beneath the pavers.
Permeable: For a permeable system, you must prepare the area before installation to ensure the longevity of the tiles. We recommend that you remove about 12 inches of soil from the area of installation. Then replace the soil with about 9 inches of crushed rock and 1 inch of leveling sand. After leveling the sub-surface, then you're ready to install the paver tiles over the top. With the base of several inches of sand and crushed stone in place, you'll ensure the proper drainage below the rubber dog bone pavers. Moisture will drain between the seams of the pavers and evaporate in the base.
Impermeable: If you're installing these tiles in an area that will be weight bearing for heavy traffic, an impermeable base is the better option. Be sure that the cement or asphalt base is flat, repairing any cracks or indentions in the surface before installing the pavers. The hard surface should have a drainage slope of at least 1.5%. You may need a drainage pit as well.
With either a permeable or impermeable subsurface, we recommend a curbing or finished edge around the entire installation to ensure that it stays in place.
We do not recommend use of these dog bone pavers in an enclosed location indoors. These tiles work best in an outdoor location or in a barn or shelter area with plenty of ventilation. Additionally, without a draining capability beneath the pavers, they will not work properly.
5. Ease of Maintenance
Keeping the dog bone pavers in top condition is easy, whether they're being used in a barn or outdoors.
Daily cleaning: On a daily basis, you'll want to sweep the tiles with a broom. Or you can use a leaf blower to easily remove any loose debris from the tiles. You can use a garden hose with a low pressure nozzle to wash debris from the tiles as well.
Periodic cleaning: For more thorough cleaning of the dog bone rubber pavers, you can make use of a pressure washer with water only or with an approved cleaning agent. (The Greatmats web site has a list of suggested cleaners.) Do not use more than 1,200 psi of pressure in the nozzle from the pressure washer.
